After a much needed week off, Derek and Josh get together to talk about the current state of WWE. Like Katy Perry said, “You’re hot then you’re cold” – and that’s exactly the way WWE has felt lately. Luckily, this week they were hot – just in time for Stomping Ground. We’ll break down RAW and SmackDown and preview this Sunday’s show.
For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.
Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.
It's still real to me, dammit!
